Synopsis

In a violent post-apocalyptic Japan, a reckless juvenile delinquent named Haruwo takes on the Yakuza, but their new bouncer may be more than he can handle...

Over a year in the making, this half-hour short was entirely the work of one person--even the music! "Haruwo" animator Shao Guee writes, "I didn't make this film for money, just for fun. I hope people all over the world will have a chance to see it. If you like it, please tell your friends about it. That's all I want. My thanks to everyone who helped me make this project a reality."

The animation in this anime is really cheap looking. First off, it's CG, which typically doesn't look very good at all. Second, the CG is very rudimentary, looking like it came straight out of the early 2000's, despite being produced in 2008. Character movement is stiff and rigid looking, and I'm also not a big fan of the art style whatsoever.

The story is ambitious and tries to tell an interesting tale, however, there isn't much depth here, and most of the story ends up just being a big set-up for the action scenes, which fail to impress due to the lackluster animation.

The dialogue is another read more

Recommendations

Anime: Tekkon Kinkreet
Almost exactly the same in both concept and content. The difference is that Tekkonkinkreet is better in literally every way, and you should completely skip Haruwo and watch Tekkonkinkreet instead.

Anime: Asylum Session
Made by the same animation studio. CG works with robotic boys fighting against another group to protect the lower caste.

Anime: Hoshi no Koe
Both: made entirely by a single man. Art styles could use improvement. Main theme is war.
